The Regional Seniors History
The idea for this event germinated as a new innovative proposal to add to our Healthway Funding application, following on from the successful Provincial and Rural Bronze.
To make this appealing to Healthway there had to be a purpose. So the idea was formed to have a 2 day event (not stroke) at a major country centre (with sufficient motel accommodation), at the beginning of the season to encourage seniors to continue to play golf.
At the time the Executive agreed, as it was part of the sponsorship portfolio.
The first event was held at Busselton in 1992. It poured with rain for 2 days. 2 players had to withdraw the first day for personal reasons, and despite the rain not 1 player withdrew or did not complete the round on the 2nd day, including the 2 who could not play on day one.
Hence the start of a popular tournament almost by default.
The trophy was donated by Mrs. Kay Lane (former President of Women’s Golf WA) in 1995.
